With proper set-up (seperate grow chamber with seperate light), knowledge and patience, you could clone your vegging plants, allow them to root and establish, then put the clones on 12/12 light cycle in the seperate grow chamber and wait to see what mother nature reveals. Remember to number the plants and the corresponding clones you take from them so that when the flowering clones show sex, you can eliminate any males. If they all turn out to be female, you should 1st: drop to your knees and thank allmighty God, and then: keeep the clones flowering along with your other plants if they are viable.
That's one way, and I have read that a plant will sometimes show sex in the late weeks of veg--
Hope that helps--

There is "NO" reliable method of sexing before flowering. Even pre-flowers are not 100% reliable or can easily be mistaken.

A nice bushy plant however.

once you learn what male balls look like, you will be able to spot them easily. the males seem to show their sex quicker than the females, but you gotta be lookin for em. you should find all your males in 1 to 2 weeks of 12/12.

look up under the plant, like "up its skirt" and where a stem JUTS out at, if theres PISTOLS (hairs) instead of seeds, you gotta *****...

BB..
PISTOLS (hairs) instead of seeds,
males don't have or form seeds, buddy. Male flowers emit pollen, which fertilizes the female pitstils, which form seeds.

;) they do look like seedpods. I've heard them described as such many times.
